What is Child Support?

Child support is a legal obligation that ensures both parents contribute financially to the upbringing of their children, even after a separation or divorce. It covers essential expenses such as food, clothing, housing, education, and medical care. Child support aims to provide children with a consistent standard of living regardless of their parents' relationship status.

Calculating Child Support Payments in Florida

In Florida, child support calculations are based on a standardized formula established by state law. The formula considers several factors, including each parent's income, the number of children, and the time each parent spends with the children. Additionally, health insurance and daycare costs are considered in the calculation.

The formula ensures that child support obligations are fair and consistent across cases. However, understanding how these factors interplay and accurately calculating child support payments can be complex.

Our experienced child support lawyers at The Law Office of Eric C. Cheshire P.A. have a deep understanding of the intricacies of Florida's child support guidelines. We can help you navigate this process, ensuring your children's needs are met while protecting your rights and financial interests. 

What Age Do You Stop Paying Child Support in Florida?

Child support obligations in Florida typically continue until the child reaches the age of 18. However, there are certain circumstances under which child support can be extended beyond this age. For instance, if the child is still in high school and expected to graduate before turning 19, child support may continue until graduation.

Can Child Support Be Modified?

Child support orders are established based on the circumstances during the divorce or separation. However, life is dynamic, and situations can change over time. Experience a significant change in circumstances, such as a job loss, a substantial increase or decrease in income, or a change in custody arrangements. You may be eligible to request a modification of the child support order.
